. “The future is certain; it is the past which is unpredictable” .

Random street observations in Cairo constitute this video piece where El Hayawan reflects on the perception of history and it’s perpetual state of being rewritten. .
The forgotten force behind recognizing that our current state is merely an imprint of repeated actions from near pasts.
